If there's one thing we all hate when playing an online game, it's cheaters! These guys ruin the experience for the rest of us. Thankfully we have the developers and other gamers on our side. Here are 7 crazy ways cheaters in which got punished!
1. Everquest 2
The online role playing game Everquest 2 recently announced the idea of prison servers. People who cheat or use a glitch to their advantage will be exiled to a prison server. In this online jail cheaters can cheat all they want since they only play with other cheaters. We wonder if they also make prison wine and shank each other.
2. Guild Wars 2
The developers of Guild Wars 2 took things a bit personal when a cheater was clearly cheating by respawning all over the place. They took control of his character, undressed him and made him publically commit suicide. They also deleted all his other characters and blocked his account. That's one way of setting an example!
3. GTA Online
The criminal world of GTA Online is not safe for cheaters. Some gamers discovered how to import overpowered cars from the singleplayer into the online world. When Rockstar Games discovered this, they made all the illegally imported cars blow up the moment a player would get in. For a while the streets of GTA Online lit up like it was the fourth of July.
4. Gears of War 2
When Gears of War 2 launched on the Xbox 360 some gamers discovered a way to unlock all achievement points. This greatly enlarged their online bragging rights. But not for long. Microsoft found out, set their gamer score to zero and marked them cheater for life. Ouch!
The developers of Titanfall have taken a stance similar to Everquest 2. Everybody who cheats will be banned to a special server. Here cheaters can fight each other with their auto aim bots and wall hacks enabled. Have fun cheating against other cheaters, suckers.
6. Counter-Strike Go
Valve has been very smart with its anti cheat policy. Dedicated gamers from the Counter-Strike Global Offensive community can get the Overwatch status, which allows them to point out cheaters. This way CS:GO is one of the first to have its in-game policies manned by gamers themselves. And it works pretty well according to the community.
7. Gaming vigilantes
And of course there are plenty of examples where gamers took matters into their own hands. In games like GTA Online and DayZ gamers have been forming vigilante groups to take down cheaters. This includes making their online lives as miserable as possible and publicly shaming them on Youtube.

Someone cheated against me (or at least tried to) in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 one time. I was using Jinpachi Mishima and True Ogre (my go to team at the time) and my opponent was using Angel and someone else (I don't remember). They just kept spamming Angel's eye lasers which, needless to say, was pretty damn annoying. My opponent's joy was short-lived because despite them move spamming, I still managed to win one round.
Unfortunately, one round was all I got through, because when the second round started, the game abruptly ended. So it turned out my opponent was a cheater AND a quitter.
never run into cheaters with the hacks on, but ive met plenty of them in gta 5 for xbox one hunting players for no reason. so i decoded to take matters into my own hands and make life as miserable as possible to them, making them rage quit the session. man it feels good to hunt predators.
I think that if someone cheated on a game with monsters or other things that depending on what they cheated on will backfire and instead death with the monster becoming harder to kill like an weak monster become as hard as an super boss
Guild Wars 1 -- The Dhuum Ban.
Sadly though, A-Net seems to have stopped caring about the best game they've ever produced with the release of its sequel (shown here).
Ever since then there have been a number of Gold-Sellers [people selling game currency for $$$], along with several folks running bots to farm higher-value items for them.
Up side though, one community for the game has found a way around these folks in our weekly PvP games.
One time a person called me a hacker because I mostly won battles by spamming the click to swing my sword really fast, so I just left before everyone on the server started to report me (It Happened A Long Time Ago On Roblox)
What I do is before hand, install hacks myself, and I turn every hack off, but when I run into a hacker I start recording and get rid of them. In GTA5 once I used a teleport hack to make a hacker teleport into the sky and fall to their death and spawn into the same place, falling, dying, falling, dying, etc...
DK64 has the ultimate buttfuckery for cheaters: Install a Gameshark JUST ONCE and the entire game will literally self destruct in front of your face. It will permanently change the game's code and make it unplayable.
Congratulations on your worthless cartridge.
I'm okay with cheating as long you do it in single player mode only.
I'm bad at mmorpgs but therefore I can use p-servers which provide some boni like exp multipliers.
the prison servers and using the community as overwatchers are great ideas
i found one when i was playing paladins... the cheater used a non-flying character but the character flies... so my teammates notice it.. even we lose the match but we always gangbanged the cheater and all of us reported that homo.. (The reason i call the cheater homo cause idk the gender xD pls dont take it personally)
Thumbs up to this vid & GW2, those developers know how to punish, Public character humiliation/Suicide/Delete there characters, Pls do this with all MMO's, or in my case "Aion" you will see the hacks disappear real quick, I refuse to use hacks & I never will, but It is ruining other players fun & progress
Coolgrunt IT'S CHEATING! PLAIN & SIMPLE! CHEATING IN ONLINE MULTIPLAYER GAMES SHOULD DEFINITELY BE MADE ILLEGAL! Blizzard THEMSELVES ARE DEFINITELY CRACKING DOWN HARDCORE ON THOSE CHEATERS IN OVERWATCH
Me and my friend were playing GTA5. Found two teleporting hackers killing everyone on the server. In return me and a friend returned fire constantly until they left the server. Which means hunting them. Following them and bugging them. Of course they were reported aswel. It was funny as f*ck.
i played cod one day and me and 2 of my friend found a hacker all of the people at the server team up and attack the hacker but its impposibel he got all of the killstreaks he got wall hacks he got aimbot and he is using a shot gun and dear god i was at the side of the map and he killed me with a single shot he is using a shotgun
Cheating in a online game is a problem that should be addressed. However cheating in a singleplayer game should be no problem, you are not causing problems for other players. You also purchased the game for singleplayer mode, so why the hell would anyone have a problem with it?
For development reasons (modding) you have to use cheats now and then to make sure everything works as you have planned and created. This to make sure your mod will not cause problems for other players, aka bug hunting. This however can cause problems if you are getting punished for using cheats because of modders and cheaters are never separated by developers, which can cause a serious problem for the modding community. It may be a good idea for developers to have people register as mod maker so that they can actually use these commands to make sure they did not forget something or have any bugs left (no, not 3rd party programs like hacks and other cheat tools. Those should be banned completely)
I met a cheater in CS:GO And he was a insane wall hack spin bot hacker. Mid way through the match, not only did he get himself roasted, he got VAC banned mid game. And boyyy do me and my friends feel good after that happend.
Developers are on our side? Then when you're playing Clash of Kings. Then it seems the developers are actually handing out exploits to others. It's always just one group of people getting these exploits, Chinese, across all servers.
When you show them proof they claim that using system bugs is not cheating. Yet it goes pretty much in the definition of cheating. In this day and age where so much money is spent on games(Clash of Clans makes $1mil a day not? ) you really can't afford to pussyfoot around with definitions of cheating as it costs people money.
I once had someone on CS:GO try to impersonate me and use various cheats. I reported him within the game using every check mark available, then found his Steam userpage, and reported him for impersonation there.
+AlexTechie I have just got into Pay Day 2 and cheaters have ruined the game. They boost new players to make themselfs feel good which is real sad but the problem is when these boosted new players join my lobby with a high infamous level so I think OK we have a good team then we start a stealth mission and they do not have a clue what they are doing!!! So now I check peoples play time and kick if I feel they where boosted.
For those saying "FIX YOUR BROKEN GAME" you clearly have no idea what's involved do you? Why do you think games like Warcraft have such a hard time keeping bots out of their PvP? It's because the creators of the most used program "Honor Buddy" wait for them to "fix" the loop hole then they find a way around it. These (genuine) hackers are incredibly smart people and can work fixes a lot faster than Blizzard can close them. This is why it's often months between "ban waves" and the like.
I hadn't heard of any cheaters in EQ2 but it's a much smaller game today than it was even a few years ago. Still I like the use of jails, it would be nice if they could be locked to a certain map section. IE create a "prison" map and legal players could either try to hunt them down or simply observe the cheater in his natural habitat.
On a side note, something about either the announcer or the transition for this video felt annoying. I wish I could be more constructive but I can't place my finger on the exact issue.

The Honest to Goodness Truth on Pubg Warrior Pack
Nevertheless, its always tough to locate a trustworthy seller of a Black Desert account on account of the risk involved in these sorts of transactions. Bring on such a desert map! We guess because its about becoming the lone survivor, even if theres a lot of teamwork on the way.
The game will probably remain in early access for some moment. It continues to attract new players that are hoping to get that sweet, sweet chicken dinner. This usually means youre have to begin downloading the game at midnight, and after that begin playing once PUBG is installed. There isnt just one play through of Black Desert that ends up the same because its up to the player to determine the method by which they level. Because of this, players will need to use the Xbox Game Preview program to be able to play the game. Xbox One players might have to wait somewhat longer for the full-release edition. They will also be able to purchase some exclusive content in the form of special cosmetic packs.
